Well it's been about a month since I've written a blog and I need to try to get back to doing so. I HAVE been watching my diet though I've not lost any weight. Which means I've not be tracking it and probably am eating more than I should by not seeing it with my own eyes.j Well, I'm here trying to get it done once again! If I'm going to loose the weight I want by January 1, 2013, I'd better get myself on track@ SparkPeople!
It's not awful to fail, it's awful when you fail and don't get up and dust off and try again! I have to say I have two daughters who have been really working on their weight and I am amazed at what they've accomplished. My youngest daughter has always outweighed both of her older sisters. NOW, she's lost enough weight that for the first time in her life, she is smaller than her middle sister and headed that way to her oldest sister. It's amazing what she has done with her weight which tells anyone that it CAN be done. She has lost almost 80 lbs.! Now , I'm just hoping she keeps the desire and puts forth the effort to keep it off!
I'm so proud of both of them. Now, you'd think that would get me going....not! But, I'm really going to try to keep at it.
I don't get to go on the cruise with them this year. My poor little car went Kaput and decided it had had enough of me. Now, I haven't had a car payment in over 7 years and I'm looking at payments for a car once again. Guess I can't expect to have one run forever. So, anyway that's why I couldn't afford to go this year. Maybe next year....if I'm really frugal!
Well, I do hope all of you are living a successful life as far as your weight loss. I'm going now to do some reading and see if I can find some motivation for today! TaDa!

Aaaawww, I don't think any of us will EVER forget that first day of school feeling. Either you were so excited to be starting back and seeing your friends, or you dreaded the routine of getting up early to meet the bus. As a Mom, I believe I had as many jitters about the first day of school as my children did! As a Grandmother, instead of getting better, I think I am getting worse jitters than ever before! YES, I was up before the sun and worrying about my grandchildren's first day of school. All the old feeling flaring up in me. But what makes it worse than ever before is the fact that I now have NO control over them....lol! All I can do is hope Mommy sends me pictures and pray God takes good care of them today. So this is the first day of school here and this Grandma is STRESSED OUT!!!
I keep telling myself I WILL NOT overeat today to compensate for my feelings! Soooo, I've got to get out and get moving in order to not do that! It's early in the day so we'll see if I can accomplish it. This means that I will be going back to my classes as well.... my girls will be starting back on their sewing lessons in a week or two and I've acquired another new student. So my lazy summer days are about to come to an end as well.
I just experienced watch for the first time an old tree being taken down in our lot beside our house (actually the neighbor's tree). It was approximately 100 + feet tall. A very old but beautiful tree. A "neighborhood" tree where many of us like to gather with our lawn chairs and sit and visit or just sit and rest. Slowly but surely the tree had begun to shed limbs from high up. So far they just came tumbling down during a storm or when the wind was high and no hard was done. But the city decided yesterday that the tree was a hazard and must come down so that no one would be hurt by a limb diving down unexpectedly. Actually when they began to take the tree down, they found that the tree was dead from the inside and indeed was going to be shedding many of its limbs in the future. My goodness what a sight to see when they began to cut it down. It was so huge that it took them all day and this morning they're back to finish the job. I'm so sad to see it go. That tree has been there for as long as any of us (even the real old timers) can remember.
Here's praying today for all my Sparkfriends and especially those who have children/grandchildren starting back to school!

Well, I am here again after a few days not coming on here, but, I do want to stay right here with my SparkFriends and keep that love going!
Ok, so if you read my blog yesterday, you know that I've really been outside hitting the streets. I have really increased my exercise in the last three weeks. Now, I've not lost any weight according to the scale but I put a skirt on the other night for church and it wasn't until I found myself mindlessly pulling it up that I realized...hey, I put this skirt on with no problem where I had been struggling to zip it up since it was so snug around my waist and belly. NOW, here I am having to constantly pull it up because it's too loose! Wow, did that ever bring the bad mood to a hault! Take that Mr. Scale! Now, I really want to get back to sticking very close to my diet so I can see some scale results as well. But, I REFUSE to let the scale discourage me any longer! (shaking my fist at the scale)
Here's hoping you all are having a wonderful and successful week!
I love my
